"The Beast is Out There" is a song from Cartoon Network's 2014 animated miniseries Over the Garden Wall. It features the Tavern Keeper warning Wirt about The Beast.
It is performed by the Tavern Keeper's voice actress Audrey Wasilewski.
[We all know the beast, pilgrim]
He lurks out there in the unknown
Seeking those who are far from home
Hoping to never let you return
Ooo, better beware
Ooo, the beast is out there
Ooo, better be wise
And don't believe his lies
For once your will begins to spoil
He'll turn you to a tree of oil
And use you in his lantern for to burn
- The song was featured on The Blasting Company's album Over the Garden Wall.
